starting the week and then leaving?

Apparently "D" school is running out of time and I am not accepted yet, I will probably be told on monday morning which sucks because next week I have school!

So my mom told me (I think yesterday she said this) that "D" school's staff has been moving kids to that school for a long time and they can't seem to have the approbation ready. If they don't have it done by friday or monday I'm going to have to go to my original school for about the first week and then either go to "D" for the rest of the year.


What am I going to tell everyone when I go.
And what am I going to tell everyone when I leave!

And what if I don't leave and I stay and they thought I was leaving?!

Right now all I can do is keep my mouth shut until further noticed, but nothing is making any sense.

The Olympics and why my school sucks

Yesterday it was the begging of the Olympics, and it was great!!!!!!
From the drums to the painting the made while dancing, to the kite they made the cute little girl fly, from the beginning when they made the fireworks look like giant's foot steps it was great. Until finally they raised the man with the torch and made him and made it look like he ran in the air around the whole top of the place, it was beautiful (kind of better than what they did in Barcelona with the bow and arrow, at least it was there right?) Today I was only able to watch the swim competition. It is very cool that the girl from America got first place (I better learn her name!!!)

Now today we got a letter from my original school. Apparently it got an "A" rating but guess what? It was JUST because of the writing FCAT test. Which only the 8th graders took. Everything else is supposably really bad. And even though I'm going to miss my school I find it really bad that we are failing in math, reading, and science.

Respond to the reviews

This is insane!

Ok the good reviews were too promising, they say the teachers are good and all that but the bad reviews say vice versa. Do they really change your schedule in the middle of the year? and why???
I'm sorry, but that's just stupid. Wouldn't we already have friends in those classes, and know the teachers, and be used to it, why would they want to change it?
I won't let me. I will not let them change my classes. My parents find it perfectly fine, but I'm afraid I don't.
Aside from that there is the the fact that they care about attendance a lot. I guess that's just because if students go there everyday then they study more, so I'm not to worried about that one. Though I'm not sure, do they or do they not give you a lot homework?

The reviews helped a little bit but I guess I truly can't know everything about that school until I go there. Either way, better get ready for the worst.

I'll keep this updated either way

"Science and science fiction have done a kind of dance over the last century... The scientists make a finding. It inspires science fiction writers to write about it, and a host of young people read the science fiction and are excited, and inspired to become scientists...which they do, which then feeds again into another generation of science fiction and science..."
